‘OTHER MAMA’S’ LAB

Be part of the experiment at chef Krohmer’s private dining room

After two and a half years, Chef Dan Krohmer was growing restless. His award-winning west side restaurant Other Mama had been a hit from nearly the minute it opened its doors in March 2015. It had been so successful, in fact, that a large portion of the menu had become locked in — too popular to toy with.

“You want to change it,” Krohmer says. “But there are (always) new people coming in. You can’t change things every week, or people are going to miss out.”

So he converted a back room into a private dining room that also will serve as his laboratory. It won’t be open every night, but when it is, the chef will get the chance to experiment. Along with special events such as wine dinners and tastings, which will be open to the public, the site will be available for private meals with menus built to each guest’s personal specifications.

“I’d like it to be more customizable,” he says of the experience. “It can be as weird as you want.”

To further set the experience apart, the room features finer plateware and place settings than the main restaurant, high-end furnishings and art by a rotating selection of local artists. Currently on display is the work of local artist Melissa Gaudet.
